Quick and Easy Swap Cards


Quick, easy and with a WOW was the theme for our April demonstrator card swap.  We have many talented demonstrators in my downline.  Here are some of the cards that were in the swap.

This first card was made by Marilyn Young using the Swallowtail stamp (129216  $13.95).  The demonstrator group requested (make that STRONGLY requested) that Marilyn make this card for the swap after she showed it in our March meeting.  Marilyn stamped the butterfly with Versamark and poured one color of embossing powder down the center.  After she added the second, third and fourth colors, she heat embossed the card.  Marilyn is known for making stunning cards and this one is another example of her talent.


Laurel Erb made this card using the Elegant Butterfly  (127526  $15.95) and Itty Bitty Shapes Punches (118309  $16.95 for 3 punches).  I love how these look together with the rhinestone accent.  The Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (129311 $10.95) makes perfect little banners to go with this card.


Can you tell that butterflies are popular right now?  Cindy Peterson made this card using the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (125409  $10.95) and the Bitty Butterfly punch (129406  $15.95).  The petals are formed by using the corner rounder punch (119871  $6.95) on opposites sides of each square. 


Deb Echols made this beautiful card using the Oh, Hello stamp set (130733  $18.95).  She did a wonderful job with the chevron stamp from this set.  I love how the colors flow together.  See the embossed detailing to the right of the chevrons?  That is from the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder (129383  $7.95).


This was my swap card.  I decided to use neutral colors and different textures to make this card pop.  There are 5 different easy techniques that made this a quick and easy card.

It is so much fun to swap with such talented friends and share their creations with you.  Have fun trying out some of the quick and easy ideas from these cards.
